Sitting on the touchlines

Before the Second World War, people used to sit on the touchline  at the Vetch Field at big matches. This was not popular with either the police or the opposition.  In the interest of their players’ safety, Arsenal asked Swansea Town not to allow the spectators to sit on the touchlines at a 1926 FA Cup tie.
